an excellent cop drama ever
20 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

T.J Hooker is one of my favorite shows besides Desperate Housewives and Family Guy. it has all of the car chases and crashes in most episodes very exciting and it's far better than the other shows on right now such as Grey's Anatomy, CSI: Miami, Lost, and The O.C. and way better than reality shows such as COPS, The Real World, America's Next Top Model and The Bachelor and Soap Operas like One Life to Live, Guiding Light and All My Children it's by far the greatest 1980's action cop show ever. i would love to see a Grey's Anatomy/T.J. Hooker crossover storyline involving Dr. Meredith Grey going to visit T.J Hooker and working with him on every case including drug bust, gang violence, grand theft auto,undercover operation to catch the bad guys or Guiding Light/T.J Hooker in which Marina Cooper goes to visit him on a drug bust or undercover operation to catch the suspects. this show is great T.J. Hooker has all of the car chases, shootouts, car crashes and more.
